Yves Saint Laurent’s Majorelle Garden

January 28, 2013

The Majorelle Garden is a beautiful botanical garden in Marrakech formerly owned by designer Yves Saint Laurent. It is also the place his ashes are now scattered.

Made in the 1920s by French painter Jacques Majorelle, this lovely garden is composed and coloured like a painting. To understand its true beauty one must walk along its raised pathways, past banana trees, groves of bamboo, coconut palms and bougainvilleas.

There is also a lovely collection of Pop Art on display painted by Yves Saint Laurent himself. LOVE was his subject matter and how befitting, for love is the great emotion one feels when walking through this charming oasis.
